I have fibro and RA so I don't know what's causes this. I have been so fatigued over the past couple of weeks. I have been running a slightly elevated temperature- 99.6- which is high for me, my normal body temp is around 97.5. I have not been having nearly as much pain, which has been great, but I don't know which is worse- being in pain or being so fatigued all the time that I can barely do anything! I have also been dizzy the past couple of days, and feeling really "out of it" more than usual.
I take Ambien to help me sleep, and about a week ago I let the prescription run out by accident and didn't take it for about 5 days. Of course, I had "rebound insomnia" where I couldn't sleep for a couple of nights, but I have been going to bed earlier than usual and have actually gotten to sleep in a few times recently.
Is it possible to be in a flare and not be in pain? I am hesitant to go to the doctor, because I know a fever is technically 101 and over, and it seems like they can never find anything wrong with my bloodwork.
I am getting so frustrated because I have 3 young kids and we have been cooped up in the house all summer because the weather has been so hot! And they want to go to the pool, or go out places, and everything tires me out! Even if I do something like walk downstairs, switch the laundry into the dryer, and bring up the next load, I need to rest after that. And we have stairs that only have like 6 steps in it.
Sorry to be complaining so much but I need to vent, if anyone has any ideas please share! Thanks!
